This paper presents a survey of the CMOs-based image sensor and its applications to various real field digital camera. CMOS image sensor, called active pixel sensor (APS), has many interesting properties such ash I회 sensitivity, high speed readout, random access and lower power consumption when it is compared with CCd. this paper also addresses the state-of-the-art of CMOS image sensor, and gives some examples of its application to digital camera and special-purpose cameras. with the advancement of semiconductor technology, CMOS image sensor is a future technology for imaging system, and will be widely used in the filed of image capturing for consumer electronics and scientific measurements.
